The movie was shot with a dSLR, with real U.S. Navy SEALs, no computer graphics, and live ammo.

At a mere 2.5 lbs. the greatest strength of the 5D was to be able to move like no camera has been ever been able to move before. The low cost of the camera also allowed the low-budget production to have multiple cameras and to replace any damaged ones as easily as going down to the local Best Buy. The downside of the camera included moir issues that had to be painted out and rolling shutter issues. Also, with the particular sensor on the camera, finding focus was very tricky. The assistants had to re-teach themselves how to pull focus. They could not lay marks down; they had to feel the distance. Hurlbut confirms that, Working with the 5D, the most important person is the focus puller.

Correction:  Besides shooting 75% of the film on the Canon 5D, 20% was shot in 35 mm and the aerial footage, which was 5% of the total was shot using the Sony F950.
